This pain is not you

Night and day. Shadow and light. So beautifully complementing.

I have a truth I experienced myself that I can tell you:

that thing that annoyed you isn’t even real or important. It’s your ego that feels offended and your “pain-body” that holds onto it. After I become present again, I realize that there isn’t even a problem. Life’s still a big funny game and all is well, I can chill 🙂

Eckhard Tolle describes:

The pain-body has a dormant stage and an active stage. Periodically it becomes activated, and when it does, it seeks more suffering to feed on. If you are not absolutely present, it takes over your mind and feeds on negative thinking as well as negative experiences such as drama in relationships. This is how it has been perpetuating itself throughout human history. Another way of describing the pain-body is this: the addiction to unhappiness.

Right, now that we know how unnecessary it is, how do we get rid of it?

It cannot feed on positive thoughts. When the pain-body no longer runs the internal dialogue of our compulsive thinking, we become aware of it directly. We feel the emotion in our body, and so we bring awareness to it, the light of consciousness.

It’s a gaaaame friends, let’s bring light into it and sunbathe with joy 🙂

(Also, read “THE POWER OF NOW” o “A NEW EARTH”. Consciousness is EVERYTHING and can be learned! It changed my life 🙂 )

Sweet nothing

I felt so much “nothing” while being in that forest. Sweet, energetic, positive, pure, clean, inspirational, fulfilling nothing. Someone put his/her hammock in between the trees. Kids built tipis out of dead wood. I sat there , being.

This is the most inspiring season to go into forests. Believe me, magic happens there 🙂

What really matters

Hey friends,

today Anna arrived in Leipzig to visit me, first time around since we moved back from Portugal! Of course we saw each other in between but never in Leipzig 🙂 Well, I guess you can imagine how much talk must be talked after a longer period of local separation (always connected internally), as we used to talk for hours every single day back then. We had vegan pizza with my family and then started to watch Youtube videos, but then we got into deep talking again and remembered the importance of mindfulness and meditation and that, next to all the work we are both doing atm, it is utterly necessary to maintain the spiritual habits! Even if it’s hard to start sometimes… it doesn’t take more than the simple decision to sit down for some minutes and stop your mind from thinking unconsciously. We both know that spiritual growth is the foundation for happiness, success and beyond, the most perfect life in the matrix can never satisfy you as much as focusing on the basis – the deepest of it all – the universe within you!
